Lake tahoe Lake Tahoe attracts visitors year-round, and the Lake becomes a wonderland of activities in the winter. You can take a gondola ride for the best views, or visit a Swiss chalet for fondue. And then after a day out, return to your cozy hotel, where the price is almost as nice as the location.

Play
Heavenly Tahoe scenic gondola ride: Take a ride high into the sky on a Heavenly gondola. The 12-minute journey takes you nearly two-and-a-half miles up the mountain, where the eight-passenger car stops at an observation station known as The Deck. From here, you'll encounter sweeping views of Lake Tahoe, Carson Valley, and Desolation Wilderness, and you can grab a quick bite to eat or drink. Rides cost $32 per person.

Eat
Tahoe Swiss Chalet: This restaurant brought Switzerland to Lake Tahoe more than 50 years ago, and it's been a hit with locals and out-of-towners ever since. In addition to its famous fondue, you'll find a range of regional Swiss specialties, such as wienershnitzel and stroganoff. Come out of the cold into a friendly European atmosphere, and enjoy the warmth of gooey cheese. Entrees start at $19.95.

Stay
Alpenrose Inn: Less than 10 minutes from the gondola, you'll find a comfy place to kick off your ski boots and relax. Each room at the Alpenrose is decorated to capture a different style, such as the English Tearoom or the Tahoe Cabin, and some come equipped with a kitchenette for longer stays. Rooms start at just $49 per night.
